Forms are available for all Premium, Business and Enterprise customers. Certain features within Forms, such as branching, header customization and confirmation message customization are only available to Business and Enterprise users.

With Asana Forms you can standardize the way work gets kicked off for your team, gather the necessary information you need, and ensure that no work falls through the cracks. You can use Forms with internal and external teams, to collect and consolidate information, minimize any friction, back and forth, or misunderstanding for your team.

How to create a Form

Forms are part of every Asana project. When someone fills out your Form, it will show up as a new task in the project it is connected to.

How to create forms

To create a Form:

  1. Access a project and navigate to the Forms tab
  2. Click Create a form

By default, your Form will take on the same name as the project it is connected to, but you can change the name of your Form and add a description to give directions or information to form submitters.

Asana Forms also come with two default questions, name and email, to ensure you get the contact information of the people who are requesting work from your team. You can choose to delete these questions when creating your Form.

Deleting the email question means that submitters won’t receive the email confirmation associated with their submission.

How to create forms

From the create form window, you can:

  1. Add a name
  2. Add an email address
  3. Create another question

Forms branching

Forms branching is a Business feature.

Forms branching enables you to create follow-up questions associated with particular responses to dropdown or multi-select questions.

First, when creating your Form, choose either a dropdown or multi-select question from your questions list.

You can have branches within branches, up to five levels deep.

Customize a Form

Once a Form has been created, you can add additional questions to your Form via the right sidebar.

The ability to add a default assignee and a custom confirmation message is a Business feature.

Enterprise users that have uploaded a logo to Asana via their Admin Console will have the option to display this logo on their Forms.

Once the logo has been uploaded, navigate to your Form and click on the Form name / Form description. From here, click Show your organization’s logo on this form.

Add attachments to a Form

You can also add attachments to your Form, so form submitters can attach creative briefs, images, documents, PDFs and more. Any attachment added to a Form will attach to the task that’s created in your project once the Form is submitted.

To add an attachment, click on the Attachment icon under your questions list.

Once you’ve added your question, you can:

Share a Form

Once your form is ready to share, you can click the Copy link button and the link will be copied to your clipboard. You can share the link with your teammates in Asana, as well as anyone who doesn’t have an Asana account, and they’ll be able to fill out the Form.

How to create forms

Once the Form is filled out, the Form submitter will see a confirmation message letting them know that their submission has been received, and their submission will come in as a new task in your project.

A confirmation email with a record of the Form submission is also sent after the Form is submitted.

The Form must include an email question and the submitter must complete the email question for the submission to be sent.

If the submitter is in Asana, you can add them as a task follower. If they are not in Asana, and you’d like them to follow along, you can send them an invite to join you in Asana.

You can then add followers, prioritize work, change task details, and move work forward to ensure that the task gets completed.

Forms as a template

Asana-created project templates include Forms.
